David has a varied background ranging from merchant marine to over a decade of IT support & Instruction, through the practice of law. Currently, David has won First Place in a Boston-based storytelling competition. With his eclectic background and wry sense of humor, David can speak to audiences on a variety of topics.
Should there be a need for industry- or company-specific information to be delivered by Mr. Finn, he only asks for a couple weeks lead time to familiarize himself with the information.
I have seen David Erik Finn on stage performing, and in social settings.
A warm, charismastic man, with a super intelligent tendency to play with the words in a story, as others might rearrange tiles in a game.... Combine these with his natural good looks, a feel good thread running through his routine, His sarcastic bent, his warm stories, the end result is you will want to hear more...and laugh more.... 5 Stars and Thank you for all the Smiles, David Erik Finn! :-)

What to Expect
David can 'edit' his speak based on the audience.Though he finds humor in almost any topic, his broad background -ranging from the practice of law to computer network instruction to musical performance- affords him the ability to readily grasp unique concepts that need to be geared towards the audience (i.e., corporate discussion about a new medical device can be interwoven with the presentation).
Reviewed 'quite funny' as a corporate trainer (giving him the push to do stand-up), David recently won First Place moving onto the Semi-Finals for Massmouth's Storytelling Slam. In 35 cognizant years on this planet, he has come to realize certain observations about himself and the people around him as comprised of exasperated disillusionment. Basically, he leads a life of quiet disdain.
David has been compared to Lewis Black with more weight. Wait, that's not exactly right; like Lewis Black in Jack Black's body. No; that's not it.
He won't remind you of Clint Black at all ('cept for being male). How about Karen Black... uhm, no -and going in the wrong direction. He's not as smart as Cofer Black, but seems to share the same second-chin look. Cofer Black? Google him.
